Well guys, here’s a soon-to-be post from the past! I am turning 30 this weekend, and I’m pretty sure that segments your life into two sections: before 30 and after.
What’s 30 going to be like?
I think 30 is going to be really weird and awesome. It’s definitely one of those “adult ages” I had in my head that I never quite pictured reaching. I have accomplished a lot before 30… but I also feel like time is slipping away for all I’d like to do.
I definitely thought I’d have a kid before I turned 30. (Epic fail, considering). I also thought we’d have made a lot more progress financially. But when you consider all we have gone through (marriage, moving, FPU twice, autoimmune disease, Paleo, then Paleo AIP, leaving teaching, getting laid off, launching blogs,)… I think I’ve gotten a lot done in my time here.
I’m really looking forward to leave my 20s behind. They were pretty awkward, career-wise, and filled with things that were only a shadow of how awesome they are now: I’ve replaced those wayward friends with true ones, I’ve progressed in my relationship with my family and JHubbs, and I’m a lot more confident about who I am and what I’m meant to do.
My 20s had some lovely moments, but I will happily leave them behind in favor of what I’ve been blessed with now.
How to celebrate the big 3-0
Net 30 invoices and FPU are kicking our budget’s butt right now, so we’ve got some low-budget, low-key things planned for the weekend.
We will not be popping off to Jamaica any time soon!
I’m getting sweet surprises from JHubbs every day this week, and this weekend there will be movies, friends, AIP-friendly treats (because of course I would recommit to a coffee-free, chocolate-free life before I got in some good Paleo birthday cake :-( ), and even a bonus baby baptism (which is an awesome new phrase I will copyright). What more could I ask for!
